. relive the dream. dream again. >> the federal government will conduct a national test of the emergency alert you c. sue oo does that make you feel safe? >> you can't avoid it every where flipping the channel. >> the federal government spent 40 years studying this soap? >> are you saver because of these congressman? do we need government to protect workers? >> absolutely. sure do. next question. >> made sense except one result is this. government's good intentions gone wrong. that is our show tonight. >> and now, john stossel. >> politicians claim they make our lives better bypassing law. i assume they have good intentions but we shouldn't judge anything by intention. sometimes good intentions go wrong. tonight we start with workplace regulations. companies are greedy they want to make a buck so it seems reasonable government has to protect workers. everyone we asked agreed with that. >> i think we definitely do. there are so many things that could happen in a workplace and you have so many corporations that could be corrupt. so i think the government should step in and help out workers
of these are entrepreneurs who are not seeking special government leaders. the big banks, the goldman sachs of the world were all internet government and the government itself is mandating the purchase of these credit defaults on its and other devices which ended up bringing down the economy. it's not procapitalist to support goldman sachs and the internment embrace of the department of the treasury. >> is supply-side economics is quick >> surprise side economics is true economics. i actually am quite excited to have mitt romney running for president because they & co. was one of the providers of the foundation of supply-side economics. they apply to business. they showed the most effective way for businesses to gain share -- market share to cut their prices. we will cut prices that their business market share because costs are out by about 20 to 30% with each doubling of total units that were sold. the cost in general, economies of scope and scale of learning is called a learning curve. this is really the foundation of supply-side economics. why when you cut taxes, which are just like a prize, you reduce co
government and freep enterprise movement and connect those policies. >> why has there been a failure to connect? >> i'm not sure there is one reason for it and i haven't had time to think about it why it has happened but it needs to happen. the principles we stand for, free enterprise and limited government is the only way to stabilize and grow our middle class which i hope every american can attain. >> how worried are you about the republican chances -- >> you mean from the voters' perspective. the demographic changes? i don't think any voter in america -- there are voters that are locked into one party or the other but the fastest growing group is people who vote for candidates and not parties and people understand the issues and hopes that they have and offer real and concrete policy situations and real role for government to play in addressing those angst yits they face. we are one election away to do it. we have to recognize what it is and concentrate on doing it. >> how much of a danger to republicans do you think is posed by the changing demographic? >> it's not a danger but i
think the federal government will be on each of the following issues. we read a list of these issues, we rotated those. this is how it basically stacks up. ensuring long-term future of entire programs such as social security and medicare, 65%. 64% creating jobs, 64% improving public education, growing the economy, creating a business environment that allows for innovation. lowering the federal deficit actually false down to 40. not as much confidence there as a part on the other side. we been said the training faces a number of challenges including but not limited to large budget deficits, national debt, slower economic recovery, high unemployment, deep political divide on many issues. do you believe we will overcome these challenges in the foreseeable future as we've done in the past, or do you think these are unique set of challenges that are so serious that we might not be able to overcome those challenges? two-thirds of voters, 67%, say we will be able to do that. 31% have concerns about it. look at the bars across the bottom. the ones like younger voters, 18-29, confident we'll get
to a cato institute that puts the average pay of a government worker at $84,000 per year. that's 32,000 more dollars than the average pay in the private sector i mean, these numbers are starting to be overwhelming ad certainly have to be part of what is, if you will, and more positive response to these right to work issues and votes that we are seeing across the country. >> i think that's right. and it steves group, the manhattan institute, has an extra very worth pointing at the differences, but you're right. taxpayers a beginning to realize this monopoly power that unions have over government which is the new frontier for them what the final frontier is really causing a rift between the rank-and-file workers in the ivate sector who have to pay these taxes for increased government and the rank-and-file workers in the public sector that are enjoying these benefits. it can't go on, and that was the battle in wisconsin, part of the baatle in michigan. lou: you cited a 2010 study in which you talk about the population growth of the right to work states. we are watching union states, usually hig
russian government is making it a requirement for tankers that follow that route to use russian ice breakers. it's not only natural gas, the japanese are looking to other energy sources to replace nuclear power after last year's nuclear disaster. an exhibition featuring the latest using solar powered technology has begun near tokyo. about 200 companies are taking part from japan, china and germany and several other countries. demand is growing in japan has power companies are now required to purchase renewable energy. but japanese solar makers lag behind overseas competitors in terms of profitability. this is one of the exhibitors. the japanese company is displaying solar panels with the world's highest level of power efficiency. it's trying to make a profit by selling solar panels as well as the electricity it generates. sharp is exhibiting a new product which is a combination of window glass and a solar battery. although it can be used on homes and office windows, it can generate only half the power of a regular solar panel. >>> more people in japan are planning to travel during t
involved is different from a private enterprise. the ability for fraud to creep into government programs financed by taxes is slightly higher than a private enterprise we've got people watching shareholders of their own personal money at risk. so i think it's endemic in government that there's a certain amount of problems in this area. in medicare that is probably the order of $60 billion per year in wasteful and fraudulent payments, which is a huge number. in part because the medicare program is ebullient claims here for medical services. the ability to track this and figure out which ones are right and wrong is limited at the federal level. there's a certain things things that go on a government that are very difficult to get all the way out. the caller is absolutely right that should be a top, top priority. .. >> caller: specifically i should have addressed the $58 million a year that we pay for foreign aid. that $50 billion would pay out each year secured or fire protection so that our citizens there, people who key figure with them -- >> host: you agree, jim? is is a drop i
involved in government service for over 40 years, i count my time in the army intelligence. it is close to 50 penc. having worked in various areas in congress and the executive branch, doing what we do here is not easy. so often part of what you do with, the challenges thank you have to work together. you have to be able to work together. sometimes it is not that easy. when it came to the joint effort here, in the military itself, i feel we have developed joint news as a real strength of our military. they're not even close to the level of joyousness we have in this country. it is working. it is doing well. my biggest challenge is going to be how can we take this model to make sure we can develop similar approaches elsewhere between military and veterans' hospitals paying able to come together, at being able to operate as one incident having these huge backlogs because they're trying to move someone from the military into the veterans operation and it becomes a huge pain in the ass to get it done. if we can bring that together so we are operating as one with the ability to really respon
not raise the adequate amount of wheat that he wanted to. because the government had decided they were going to control wheat plantings. and so what he said was, okay, then i can raise wheat for my chickens. and he took it all the way to the supreme court and lost that battle. >> host: why do you recount that story in "the debt bomb"? >> guest: because it's a great example on the enumerated powers and the unwinding -- why do we find ourself in the place we're in now? how'd we get here, what do by -- we do about it, and what are the ramifications? the greatest way for the government to make something expensive is for the government to make it affordable. and all you have to do is look at the programs. what were the average inflationary costs of health care before we created medicare and medicaid? they ran the same as every other aspect of our inflation. in other words, there was no differential between health care costs. now that we have a government program, what has happened is health care costs are two, sometimes three times the rate of the average inflation in the economy. so what you did
and europe are crashing on our shores? >> they are dumping product by having government subsidies to chien needs products that are often then subsidized so they can put you guys out of business on the entire market. that's what a lot of americans don't understand. it's frustrating to me. >> there is probably an even more important point about the product that is that our own government is making it more difficult for us to compete. >> how are they doing that? >> president obama is making the rounds. he is going to help us out by increasing our taxes. the only way we can beat governor is by investing in equipment. if the wage rates are lower in china and steel costs the same electricity costs the same the only way i can make business is to have better gimeequipment ane only way to have better equipment is to continually investment the only way to continually invest is make a profit. we are unable to invest in equipment capital accumulation increases wage growth decreases. >> there are a lot of big businesses that do okay. corporations are taxes at all. finding ways to be multi national. the
the speaker makes a mistake and the tea party is not a group that embraces serious tangibles of government that is traditionally work in this country. there are members of congress who got elected because, in fact, the tea party activists across the country were involved in the election. the tea partiers and outsiders -- i would remind john boehner that there was a time when he was the outsider that was an annoyance to the party leadership. i understand the speaker being annoyed when he has people within his caucus that are committed to a set of principles that they make it hard for him to make easy deals. but i would also remind him that people are not going to forsake their principles for something that is as insignificant and their life as a committee assignment remark that is right. >> if he thinks this is a party discipline, he is sadly mistaken. he often knows that from his own experience as a younger time in his service in congress. charles: representative, it has been set from the beginning that the tea party not only poses an incredible threat to the senate democrats, but to estab
to collective bargaining rights, if power of collective bargaining for government workers. this is theoretically a less divisive issue. in wisconsin the president stood nearly silent. in michigan the president goes there the day before this mass demonstration and fires up the crowd. that didn't sound like a middle class tax relief outing, that sounded like the president firing up the base ahead of a day of maas demonstrations. alisyn: as you point out, chris, two years ago when this came up with wisconsin, the president basically said that's a state issue. he talked about it when asked in interviews, but he didn't prompt the conversation himself like he did yesterday. is there any talk in washington that by weighing in on this he ginned up the protesters, even inadvertently of what's happening now that we see? >> well, he sure didn't hurt the turnout. he sure didn't hurt the ardor for the union side, and that's by giving it his complicit blessing the day before and talking about this stuff. you know, michigan, what that state representative was talking about there, there will be blood, talking a
of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> all right. this is perhaps the most disappointing development of the day. the house republicans, they were not elected to raise either rates or revenues. they were elected as a check and balance against president obama's reckless deficits and his reckless debt. they were elected to stop the explosive growth of government. the republicans were elected and sent to washington to fight for limited government, balanced budgets, and of course, greater liberty for all the american people. at this moment it seems like they are only offering a democratic light version for america. maybe they need to learn a thing or two from president obama. maybe they need to show a willingness to go over the so-called fiscal cliff. now, if the president really wants to take the country there, maybe they need to let him go there. here's the bottom line. what are we hearing from the white house? we're hearing the president will not negotiate unless taxes are raised on job creators, and we're hearing that the presi
. >> the federal government responded promptly and decisively. >> response has been robust. >> thank you for being such a strong leader. >> i am grateful for the productive conversations we have had. >> complement our e emergency responders. they did an incredible job. neil: bidding aside the idiocy oo these remarks but the incredibly bad timing for thousands of out homes better in hotels and temporary housing. we hear that a government will take the punch bowl away when the shelter coverage ends despite their prediction from the government himself it may be months before they have a home. it seems sought only after two months it has made no contingency. don't be surprised if the folks to get the help raise a finger in the year. time to clear and how we stop this during the holidays with the greatest crisis we have never known common mayor guiliani. >> the response has not been that good. >> go back to where they did not have water. i am active with the twin towers fund raising many delivering blankets, water. one day after the nor'easter fema close the office for whether. this is ridiculous and s
and see what happened with the bankruptcy when the federal government got involved. the cfo lost their jobs from the board of directors lost their jobs, and there are restrictions to the money coming in. so the federal government. the city of detroit knows what the problems are. the question is do we have the political will to make the difficult decision. gerri: that is where i want to go next. the track record here -- the track record here is not good. we have years of overspending. it is incredibly embarrassing stories, the previous mayor usinggan airplane at his own leisure to do personal travel. we have just a terrible financial track record. per capita income at 25,000 below the u.s. average. detroit employment is 18%, almost 19%. does the city council -- does the city management have it under control? have you guys just lost control? >> we certainly have it lost control. we have it under control. but we have our issues. but we are not falling off into the detroit river. the community is doing well. the business community, the corporate community and the city of detroit. we
of just 2.5% in the u.s., 1.5% in canada and zero growth in the uk. locally, cutbacks in government spending weighed on the numbers and lower commodity prices also impacted on cash flow and the government is facing more criticism about its effort to keep the budget in surplus while the economy grows. >> the government has had the objective of making sure that we would bring our budget back to surplus when growth has been around trend. what we've been seeking to do through good budget policy has been to provide maximum flexibility to the reserve bank to a just rate so. the government will always put in place appropriate budget settings which will support growth and jobs. >> still, analysts say growth could slow further as the mining investment boom peaks. yesterday, the bank of australia cut interest rates to a record low of 3% and traders are looking further easing next year to offset the falling talks of trade, the high australian daughter and further cutbacks in government spending. >> despite that prognosis for rates and the fact that we're now matching the record lows here, the
. bottom line, i think, it's no way to govern. it is a giant mistake to have all of this in a pool of ambiguity, and as i understand it now, you would know more. i mean, it truly is a stalemate. they are not talking. >> now, you point out that it's the same player, and, i think, you'll agree player that is matter most are the president, speaker boehner. what do we know about the personal relationship that might illuminate what's going on right now? >> well, they started out last year when they were working on the debt ceiling, and they had what are calledded the merlot and nicorette's meetings. in other words, boehner would have a merlot, and obama would chew nicorette. >> you point outside in the book somehow when they took the official photo, both of those vanished. >> yes. they had iced tea there for obama. of course, boehner had his seg represent, and they put the cigarette in the ashtray away for the picture, but they have not closed the deal on the personal relations, and that's a shame. i think if somebody, instead of sponsoring your breakfast and all, sponsor a weekly dinne
on a philosophy grounded in limited government, the free market and the judeo-christian tradition and this should be attractive to young and old black and white male or female voters. the most important thing is that we not despair. the problems we face today are no worse than the ones conservatives faced in the 1970 os when remember they had to deal with a weak economy and aggressive soviet union and the fallout from vietnam. they overcame those problems and they changed the world for the better. we can do the same. and that's the memo. now on to the top story tonight. the president's refusal to budge in negotiations with the g.o.p. on fiscal cliff talks. joining me now university of chicago booth school of business professor and former chairman of the council of economic advisors under president obama, dr. austan goolsbee. dr. goolsbee, where is the stethoscope? come on, i see it there hello, good to see you, austin. >> hey, laura great to see you again. i painted the pictures why conservatives should figure it out and not be in despair. on the other side of the equation you have the president.
are bringing in. this president under hs first four years increase the size of our federal government spending by 25 percent, and now he's king for more stimulus money. unfettered control. this really is a hostage situation, and thiis not wha the american people need. we have million americans looking f jos, searching for jobs. we don't need to add dditional taxes. gerri: coerswoman, look. the americapublic is goino blame your party, the republicans, some 53 percent sa the iscal cliff happens, every fall over the edge reblans are to blame. how do you square tht? is a year on the ght t side, trying to do thigs. t the public certainly does not see your effort. >> i thi one of the things that is so difficult for me i that the media cannot not talking about you in particular. the general media has allen into this rabbit hole of only talking about this one isue. if we were to give the psident what he wants, the panacea. that is hepitfaf our problems. it only funds government for eight days. how can we be serious about staying focused on one thing in not talking about all the other issues. spending
is in the south and that population is also in the need of services. the government hasn't included both in the delivery of services as well as the governments of the country the people of the north and although we have implemented programs in the north unless there is a connection between the government and individuals, the programs are not going to have the effect of people feeling as though they are a part of society. and so, there was an effort planned over the last couple of years where the development partners in tandem with the government, the central government would deliver resources to the north again with a government out in the lead and with the donors supporting. unfortunately, the pace of that was too slow and not very effective. another point moving forward i think is that we do need to concentrate on decentralization and making a connection between the government services and the individual what the community level. >> to build further on the comments about the resource base within the mali clearly there are difficult choices for the government there that are involved in
and government regulations are damaging his and similar businesses. he says the president's policies to help the middle class are going to have the reverse effect. joining us is president and co-founder of american bar products, william marsh, good to have you here. >> good morning, thanks so much for having me. >> now, you manufacture steel bars, something that's used in various places, but what are the challenges that you face, trying to make a product in america? >> governor, i never miss a marketing opportunity. on my way in i can't help, but notice a lot of steel is mid in my company. steel that moves your lights and books and underneath the audience. >> i have paper out there. be careful out there audience. >> it's all made by companies like mine. our product is a qualities product. it's the same as sold in china and india. it's a big difference, the question is how does a company like mine compete in a global environment where china, india and europe are on our shore. >> they're having government subsidies to chinese products so they can put guys like you out of business and that's wh

government and the lloyd. this is about an hour. -- and deloitte. this is about an hour. >> good morning. i'm the head of bloomberg government. thank you for joining us today, and thank you to deloitte for partnering with us in this event. when we launched bloomberg government just about two years ago, we had the aspiration of creating a one-stop shop, with data, tools, news, and analysis to help government affairs and government sales professionals make better and faster decisions. we went a long way toward achieving that aspiration. a big part of it is conversations on the important issues that face our nation today, particularly at the intersection of business and government. today's discussion on the fiscal cliff clearly meets that. we are honored to have such a thoughtful panel. senator mark warner, senator bob corker, congressman chris van hollen, governor tim pawlenty, who is currently president and ceo of the financial services roundtable. moderating our discussion today is al hunt. we always love having al over here. he really put bloomberg on the map here in d.c. yesterday it was
people have chosen a divided government. it is up to us to make this divided government work. we have to set aside partisan concerns. how to work together to prepare this economy to get people back on their feet? how do we get this sense of real security and upper mobility for all americans, especially those in need? they are the same. the old ways will not do. we need new thinking and renewed efforts from all americans. it is true that president obama won reelection. i congratulate him on his victory. on january 20, he will face a stagnant economy and a fiscal mess. you might say he will inherit these problems. bft -- [laughter] in his second term, i hope he will offer fresh ideas. failure will mean four more years. we have work to do. i'm proud of our ecampaign. i'm proud of mitt romney. serious solutions for serious reforms, we thank him for doing that. the election did not go our way. the republican party cannot make excuses. we cannot have the next four years on the sidelines. we need to apply our timeless principles to the challenges of the day. our party excels at representing
to run the government for eight days. so what do you do the other 357 days? or if you look at the deficit, it will only take care of 7% of the $1 trillion-plus deficit that we have every year. what about the other 93%? so the point being that we can talk about taxes and taxes and taxes, but it's not going to solve the fiscal problems facing our nation. we don't have a taxing problem. we have a spending problem. and so we should have been spending the last three weeks talking about how we're going to take care of the other 93% of the problem. the president should have declared victory three weeks ago, and we wouldn't have had all this lost time between now and right after the election. but i said i wanted to set the record straight. the tax relief reduced the -- the tax relief of 2001 and 2003 reduced the tax burden for virtually every tax-paying american. it did this through across-the-board tax rate reductions, marriage penalty relief, enhancing certain tax provisions for hardworking families such as doubling the child tax credit. since the passage of this tax relief, there's been a conc
